    I know the hospital went back and forth for a while regarding the coding. The research I did back then suggested the CroFab cost the hospital around $2200/vial to administer... 14 vials. I can't explain what they charged.

    Levi is our 15 year old (14 at the time). ~$4600. 6 hours in the ER, 4 days in a room, 14 vials of CroFab; followup was 3 days after discharge and another two weeks later. He was at soccer practice a week after his discharge. I forget what mom's helicopter flight cost back in February of last year, but it was relatively cheap. ~130 mile flight, I left the local hospital shortly before the helicopter got there and was there to watch the helicopter land. I remember an ambulance ride home was going to be $3800ish cash, but it didn't come to that.

    Most folks couldn’t pay on the spot I’d wager, but that logic is more due to liquid poverty. Remember Levi’s snake bite? $116k, insurance paid $4600ish and that was that.

    I thought so, but I didn't see anything in your recent posts to tip me off! I talked to Jerry, he decided to buy a stump grinder and said he'd buy an SD64 in a few months... we'll see what happens.

    Our insurance comes through the wife's work. We pay a portion of the premium and her company picks up the (substantial) balance.

    Also 90' working height, not 70'. Omme makes shorter lifts, but the 90' is "the" lift they're famous in the tree industry for. 52' of side reach, but only with 176lb in the basket.

    Hmm, not that I recall... don't see him in my accounting software either. That being said, I'm having a hard time placing you based on your screen name and Florida? Cribbing on a swinging outrigger (vs out and down) is/can be more complicated due to the outrigger moving in and out from the machine through its range of motion. Spiders usually have exceptional ability to level themselves out without rigging. One thing to consider/remember/think about is the friction between your outrigger pad and the supporting surface.... you're setting up on a 20* slope of dense asphalt (fairly smooth) and your outrigger pads are hard, slick plastic... You could go slip sliding away.

    The SD64 in early 2015 was $4-5k more than the Tracked Lifts 72'er, but $5k on two different machines doesn't really matter. $5k difference on the same machine (say two dealers for the same product) would be more of a factor (in dealer selection, not product selection).

    Nah, I still sell Nifties, for now at least. My opinion is a year old at least, but I agree with the Tracked Lifts 72’ spider. I thought that’s what I was going to get back in 2015 before I did a comparison to an SD64. At that point I had never actually looked at an SD64 in person, thought a spider was the obvious choice. IMO, for a 70’ Lift, unless you need narrow access (Tracked Lift’s spider) or dielectric (bucket truck) the SD64 is the best lift for usual tree work. Deva needs narrow access, so Tracked Lift’s spider is the answer. I personally would avoid CMC, Cormidi, Blue Lift, and maybe someone else I haven’t thought of yet. The JLG spider looks impressive, but the price was something like 60-70% higher than the Tracked Lift. I haven’t checked in about a year, but the Tracked Lift should be around $90k, give or take $5k.

    Glad it got resolved. If they advertised something and delivered something else, that's a strong hand if you wanted to push the matter. I agree that starting with less waves is a good place to start.

    Awesome on the MFG’s part, the dealer is weak sauce passing the buck on handling the situation.

    I can't imagine drilling won't suck. The bolts are hardened and given the diameter it'll be hard to get substaintial down pressure.

    The bolt heads themselves wear, reducing the allen's engagement depth. In situations like that, we'd use a cutting torch/plasma cutter to cut the head off. Never had a problem with the wheel. It could be done with a grinder, but that would suck a lot more; couple minute job with a torch.

    Are you ok, B? Painting equipment?! Prep work is where the quality comes from... super pita time wise, but worth it. I'd get on researching via the googler.

    I agree with the first part of Brendon's post; I haven't talked to Jim about it.
